Before he putts he will mark his ball and clean and replace the ball, lining up the line directly at the hole. It helps him aim the ball. There is no rule against it.

Is it a foul if your ball hits the black line where the floor meets the bowling lane?

This one may be subject to a vote of the players on the league. Fouls occur when you release the ball after you have passed the black line with your toe or foot. If you walk past the black line and come back with the ball still in your hand, this would not be a foul. A bowling foul only occurs if you release the ball from the gutter or foot over the black line. Arms and other body parts may cross the black line. If a foul occurs, you should reset the pins and start again. If you get another foul, your turn is over.
